January 11, 2017 at 11:20 AM

MAHOPAC, N.Y.— It was a banner day for the Indians as they hosted the 31st annual Mahopac Invitational on Jan. 5 at Lakeview Elementary School.

The Indians split their squad up into Mahopac Blue and Mahopac Gold. Mahopac Blue placed first as a team with 69.65 points.

“It was a great team effort — everyone contributed,” Mahopac coach Vin Collins said. “Some top-flight gymnastics tonight and we really held our own.”

Callie Johanson finished second in the all-around with a score of 35.85. Jamison Castrataro won the floor exercise with a 9.0, while Mahopac Blue teammate Chloe Lee took first in the uneven bars with an 8.5.

“Callie was again solid in the all-around as was Jamison on floor and Chloe on bars,” Collins said.

Cassie Traina finished second in the vault with an 8.3. Sydney Hughes was third in balance beam with an 8.0.

“It was nice to have Cassie competing again,” Collins said. “She did well in vault and Sydney had a fine performance on beam.”

For Mahopac Gold, Hailey Woods was ninth in the all-around, scoring a 29.25. Sarah Citarella placed fifth in the beam with a 7.5.

Kylie Rosenquest paced Carmel Red with a third-place finish in the all-around with a score of 33.2. Ava Marsich placed second in the balance beam (8.15) and Kaitlin Maguire was fourth in the vault (7.75). Carmel Red finished fifth as a team with 62 points.

Mahopac has a difficult stretch of meets coming up as it takes on host Wappingers at Dutchess Gymnastics Center at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12. The Indians then face Lakeland/Panas at Dynamic Gymnastics at the same time on Jan. 17.

“The next couple of weeks will be challenging,” Collins admitted. “We have Lakeland/Panas and Wappingers coming up and they will be real competitive.”

King Andrew Has Spoken

So, there is now a deal to close down Indian Point by the year 2021. None of the local elected officials were part of these discussions. After all, why should they be? They only represent the people who will be affected, mostly negatively, by this deal. If there is anything we have learned during the reign of King Andrew the First, it is, “So it is written, so it shall be done.”

Standing up to Hypocrisy

I was navigating my way through the huge crowds waiting to check out at BJs just before Christmas, when I happened to find myself across from a small group of women heatedly discussing the recent election.  An attractive redhead—she appeared to be in her early 60s—was angrily berating three women standing just behind her, incredulous that they were talking about how they had ...

Once Upon a Sagging Mattress

“Help!” I cried out meekly.

“Where are you?” asked my husband, looking around the bedroom.

“I’m in here,” I responded. “In the mattress.” Truth be told, I wasn’t actually in the mattress. It was more like I was on it, but I was sunk down so low, it looked like I had been swallowed up by the mattress. Our very pricey and ...
